I am trying to set my back view camera in my Honda 2001. I could not figure out how to make electric configuration - I just want to avoid using tail light and my backup camera can keep running while I am driving (or I can put a switch).
Here what I have:
According to manual the camera in left, black to cable has two input one for power and another to monitor. The (red and black) cable in the middle goes to power. The yellow tip black cable ( in the right) is extension that will take from back of the car to front where monitor will be housed. Yellow cable attached to it ground (I do not know where to attach it ?).
I have minimum knowledge on wiring and car mechanical stuff. So I just want to power my monitor and camera. For monitor I bought:
Cigarette lighter plug (see the above photo assembled with monitor power input)
I did not know how can I power both monitor and camera. I also want to know if any other things to perform (such as earthing) to make the system perfect. Please suggest step wise.
Here is what I figured out:
But still have following questions:
(1) What does earthing means ? How can I perform it appropriately?
(2) How can I connect two wires at the cigarette lighter source ? Any precautions ?
